    That is a great idea!! A shirt that says 'DONT TOUCH'. When I'm pregnant I'm getting 280 shirts so I have a different one for every day LOL!

    I always try to just steer away, you can see on people's faces when you approach them so just pretend to look the other way for the time being lol. My family always ask first, and they r the ones I don't mind if they touch!

    It's just really the start of everything, cause once bub's born, they'll then wanna touch the baby with their grotty hands on their face/mouth which then needs to go on your boobs. I think I like the idea of 'oh I feel nauseous so that makes me feel worse' comment someone gave. That'll make them think twice with the next person

    Argh, my sil did this every time I saw her. Lift my shirt and kiss my belly and talk to the baby with her lips touching my skin. Completely grossed me out. I'd try to push her away but she never got the picture



    I like the idea of saying you're sick and the touching makes it worse. Think I'll use that line this time. Surely threatening to vomit on them should do the trick, lol.

    I had a very involved friend (it felt like she was living the pregnancy through me) who would go to the extreme of sticking her finger in my belly button. Freak!! She knows I HATE people touching me, especially my bump and she still insisted on doing it. I almost punched her in the face. I hope you have better luck than what I had. But then again, she just doesn't listen.

    I was very lucky not to have anyone try (I was disappointed, I didn't get to tell anyone off)!

    Join the FB page called "ask before you touch my pregnant belly"

    Buy the shirts "hands off the bump"

    Push their hands away if they touch you. Words don't cut it I found. You gotta actually move their hands off you.

    Good luck! I hated that so much. I find it the hugest invasion of privacy. For me it started at two weeks pregnant!

    No one has ever tried this without asking first. I think if they did I'd probably just push their hand away as a reflex reaction. If someone reaches for your belly just take a step back and put your hands over it, surely they should be able to read the body language.
